Hi Josh!

I'm very glad you will be back in coding for KDE!!! 
KNewStuff has been moved to KNewStuff2 which does not work fully yet but 
should be promising and ready for the 4.0 release. Upload will be allowed. So 
that's a point less. 
I think what you should do in KAnagram is make a way to get the files 
translated as there are only 2 or 3 languages that have the data. Maybe using 
a dummy .cpp file. This should be talked to with Albert maybe who has a great 
expertise in data (among all others).
If you have no time before release I can look at translations, port to SVG and 
ensure KNewStuff is working. As long as you keep an eye on Kanagram after the 
release and fix the occasional bug!
Cheers and finish well your school term!
